"Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." -- John Muir

I was stuck on dry land this weekend. If you exclude my time out of town for my mother's birthday, this is the first week since purchasing my kayak in April that I haven't made it onto the water. Work conspired to keep my ashore but couldn't keep me away completely. I managed walks along Cypress Creek both days this weekend. The banks show signs of a modest rise from the showers last week, but the creek is almost back down to its low ebb again now. One of these days when the water is finally high enough, I want to float this creek and Spring Creek also!
